Hymn/Song Information

If on a quiet sea toward Heaven we




If, on a quiet sea,
toward Heaven we calmly sail,
|: With grateful hearts,
O God, to Thee,
We’ll own the favoring gale. :|


But should the surges rise,
and rest delay to come,
|: Blest be the tempest,
kind the storm,
Which drives us nearer home. :|


Soon shall our doubts and fears
all yield to Thy control;
|: Thy tender mercies shall illume
The midnight of the soul. :|


Teach us, in every state,
to make Thy will our own;
|: And when the joys
of sense depart,
To live by faith alone. :|
